Williamson left college he declared hat he intended to become president fa big railroad. , That ambition was 30 years old when ; was realized in a measure that would have satisfied most men. In 1923 Williamson became head of two small western railroads. The wagon that he had hitched to a star .had become a private car. But this wasn't'enough. So on Jan- uary 1 he will become presiden of the New York Central lines. Williamson didn't have to go into railroading in, 1898, after he graduated from Yale, nor was there need why he- should have sought a position as a clerk. He had been trained for a better job. His father was a wealthy Cleveland banker and! could have launched him far on a career of finance. But he took the clerical job with the New York Central. Ho became claim ' agent, freight agent, car accountant assistant division superintendent and, in. 1916, division superintendent. When America entered the World War his goal of a presidency still was far ahead But he quit and volunteered his srevices. They placed him in chrage of movement of troops by rail all along tha North Atlantic. seaboard. Back at his job again, Williamson became general superintendent, then assistant to the general manager of the New York Central. In 1925 the Northern Pacific hired him away to be- M X U)AV PACK IN) THE DANS, kr%R.TME CIVIL UJAR., Ff iS^eOORPED W ME ••• HIT A HOMERUM IOITM i MEW ON TfrE BASES ? *#r so- Peri L HAZEL ' ROSS BAILEY 1(0 THE MliNflH INNING, WINNING raeGAME -UJIAICU MADE ...•HiMTneToUJM HERO- <>* plate to FLY, who ike believe* J»«>r luothcx,.

Yet she knew quite well that so far Bruce had, managed to thwart the girl's every effort to be alone. She must have turned to Bruce for Mary heard a low-voiced colloquy. 1 Then Bruce spoke, coaxingly: "Surely, y.ou're not going to spend this gorgeous day in bed? Come along!

Bruce was merely trying to make himself obnoxious, so that she would find life in the Jupiter household unbearable and leave; It was pleasant to go down to breakfast alone. The dining-room was cool and dark and blessedly empty. Early bathers had breakfasted and gone. And it waa too early for lunch.

It just remindedime ; 'of something Dirk told me—" She repeated to' him what had seemed so suspicious to Dirk—that the manufacturer'of Jupiter motor cars should buy a Lorimor car and keep, it in hiding. 'At. least, not even the members of his household knew thr' he had It. Bowen frowned over that for a few minutes. "By George," be exclaimed, "1 never "ould have thought of that! Maybe the old boy's slyer than we think—" He shook his head, discarding the suspicion. "No, I don't believe it." "Neither do I,".Mary agreed, .relieved to have some one back up her confidence in Jupiter. "Keep it in mind, though," Bowen advised, as one who believed in thoroughness and efficiency. "Now, what's on the books for today?" "Just, waiting for tonight, mostly," Mary said ghjv.qring. "I must find out what ldhd;bf costumes will be de rigour, at the party and find myself one, And bore's something else—" ' •" ' . • * • pONE was her peaceful Interlude, ^ aa last night's fresh worry recurred to mind. Sim told Bowen of seeing De Loma and the Countess Louiso in close and animated conversation in tha lobby, when the alter was supposed' to be in bed vith a severe headache. "You don't suppose she knows his so-called pleasure trip is really a hunt for the Ply? You don't suppose she's told him?" Bowen's usually placid brow took on some real corrugations. He was obviously more worried than lie would admit. "Well, I know a quick way to lint out, 1 ! he said, and got up. Pres ently he returned wltfi the informa, tipn, "He's checked out. Last nigh —late." And sat down heavily Despair took him In hand for a mo ment, and shook him as a ca shakes a rat. "My God," he moaned, "you don' suppose that she-cat of Bruce's has given the show away? Woman or not, I'll poke her in the nose, if she has! I swear I will! I've followed that bird this far, but this is no round-the-world cruise!" He writhed silently for a minute. "No, I'll tell you what It is," he said, presently. "He had to get oui anyway. This is no free flophouse and he's down to his last thin dime. Probably juat saying ;oodby—talking over old times a sit. Didn't you say he and the Countess were pretty thick once upon a time?" he added hopefully "There's something betweeA them/' Mary assured .him, "He's >robably been her lover-at some imj9 or other. Yes, it might have >ee» that—only that." She tried to lelleve herself. "Well, then I B\jp f lose my date for tonight is can- elled ..." It was hard to say whether disappointment or relief was her principal reaction to this bought. "But he said it 80 flrwJy TlMft there! 1 As if h^'d twip ivere a»d climb mountain? and Of thing, you w impress you," Bowen said. "Still, I'll bet he shows up. The necklace is his best bet now. Anyhow, you'd better be there with bells on, in .case he does come.". •A bellboy insinuated himself Into '.the conversation at this point, with a message from the room- clpj-k. "The clerlfr says' to tell you ho was'mistaken about the matter you . just asked about," he told Bowen. "The man did check out of Parlor but later ho came over and paid Ills bill and took another room. It's No. 802 if you want to roach him, sir. Thank you, sir." • r HEN the boy had'departed, enlightenment rested;,on tho faces of those whom he had just left. "Looks like the girl-friend staked him," Bowen mused. "Now, why would she do that? He must have been her Big Moment at some time or other. Or maybe she had to do it to keep his mouth shut. Maybe anything. Wo tlon't need to worry about it. We'll know all about it oun of these days." Ho took a clgarct and pushed back his chair. "Well, our time may be short. We'd better get busy. I want to buzz around and borrow that trick camera and got a picture ol the Countess if 1 nan. If \vo can get some dirt on her maybe we can scare her with it, even if wo don't use it any other way. Ilov/'re you | going to work it to get Tiio Fly on board tho "Gypsy" toaight. Havo you any idea?" "None at all," Mary confessed. "I'm,just trusting to luck to tell mo what to do when the time comes. What I'm afraid of is that I won't get a chance to talk to Mr. Jupiter first. T Ie's off now for tho day and Bates with him. What if wo need extra men? Bates will be with me but there ought to be another secret service man at tho affair whom De Lorna doesn't know. Ho knows Bates, though of courno he doesn't know he's a plainclothesman. I wonder ..." Here the same bellboy hovered about again, dually injecting himself between tho abstracted pair with, a suave, "Are you Miss Harkness? Miss Mary Harkness?" Startled, Mary assented. "Gentleman in the lobby to see you," the boy rattled off, relieved at having discharged his duty. He hurried off, to wait for her in the doorway. "I'll go—you stay here," Mary Whispered to Bowen, her heart thumping wildly with uncertainty and nervousness. Bowen nodded. "Don't worry about me. I'll go take a look at the kitchen if I can't get out any other way." Mary followed the bellboy, her .llnjhs quaking treacherously." As she walked,ground" the high-backed chAJr- to race its occupant, she felt a weakness that was almost like fainting. The outstretched legs, garbed in white linen, were uncommunicative. As. abb came face to face with the man in the chair, who rose swiftly to meet her, her relief waa almost to her puzzlement, was npt, aa she had feare* De Loma, but a stranger. Try aa ihe would, from a quick scanning >f tbs good-looking, sunburned face, he could not recall ever having t&e majjt before i» her life,^ come one of its vice presidents. Three years later he stepped into the presidency and chairmanship of the executive committee of the Chicago Burlington and. Quincy. But now the New York Central lines ; are taking him back. When Patrwk.j-S. Ctowley, the president, retires flt";the end of the year, he will be succeeded by Williamson, one of his, former clerks.
